#MicrosoftEdu works to bring #STEM to your Classroom with support from @LEGO_Education, @TiViTz, @swopbots, @gotynker & @adafruit

Microsoft and Adafruit team up in the name of STEM Education!

Bring STEM to your classroom with games, coding and kits from our Microsoft Education partners.

Earlier this month we celebrated Women’s Day and the launch of our #MAKEWHATSNEXT campaign, designed to empower women and girls in science and technology to achieve more. A recent study conducted by Microsoft revealed that most girls become interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) at the age of 11-and-a-half, but interest cools around the age of 15. The opportunity for immersive learning through simulations and gaming is humbling, but Microsoft Education isn’t alone in working to ensure that STEM is available to everyone, and to enable every student to reach their full potential.  We want to celebrate just some of our inspirational partners who support us in our aim:

In the Maker community, creativity and the do-it-yourself culture intersect with technology and the hacker culture. In 2014, Microsoft rolled out the Windows Developer program for IoT, embracing the principle of openness that is core to the Maker movement. Raspberry Pi, one of the Maker community’s favorite platforms, is now part of Microsoft Azure IoT Starter Kits for Windows 10, incorporating Microsoft development tools, services, and resources.
